Energy and Environment Committee Meeting: Advancing Offshore Wind in the Northeast
Offshore wind activity has gained momentum in the Northeast, with some 30 gigawatts on track for development by 2030, enough to power roughly 20 million homes. The industry is expected to support tens of thousands of jobs and reduce carbon pollution, but it is still nascent, and maximizing its success will require coordinated efforts among states, industry, the federal government, and local stakeholders. This session will provide a status report on current commercial-scale offshore wind projects, efforts to scale transmission and other infrastructure to create greater efficiencies and reduce costs, and an update on workforce and supply-chain development opportunities throughout the region.
